2016 AZELIA BAROLO

$46.00 $46.00

Farming their vineyards with devotion for the past 100 years, Azelia believes that only the expert eye and skilled hand can achieve the highest quality grapes. Their hillside vines are world-renowned for their terroir and recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Their wines perfectly embody tradition and the care that goes into every aspect of production. Robert Parker alerted his readers that “Azelia can hold their own with the very best in the region,” and the 2016 vintage is no exception. At less than $50, every Italian wine lover should own this.

Luigi Scavino has over 40 harvests under his belt, and he exercises extreme precision in every step of the production. He performs a minimum of two “green harvests” each vintage, which reduces yields and ensures uniform ripening, impeccable quality, and powerful concentration.

The winery’s flagship Barolo is impeccably balanced, made from seven single vineyards, including grapes from Riserva Bricco Voghera, which adds maximum concentration levels. Simply put, the value that you get with Azelia is tough to find.

2016 AZELIA BAROLO

“This is an ultra fine Barolo with cherries, spice, cedar and hints of dried flowers on the nose and palate. It’s full-bodied, yet reserved, very caressing and fine-grained. A thoroughly beautiful young 2016. Drink or hold.”

 “... Iron, sage, mint, smoke and wild cherry give the Barolo striking aromatic nuance and complexity, all in the mid-weight style that is such a signature at this address. The purity of the fruit is just striking. Stated simply, this is a tremendous wine in its peer group.”
93 Points
“Azelia’s classic 2016 Barolo shows a spicy or savory personality with accents of laurel leaf, eucalyptus and clove. Those are some of the high notes that hover over a core of dark fruit and dried blackberry. On the Nebbiolo scale, this wine takes us to a sultry side of the variety, with slightly more fruit weight, texture and pronounced black fruit. If you are choosing your Barolo according to a possible pasta or meat pairing, this would be the meat wine."
